Ingredients

  • 4 10-ounce ribeye steaks, 1-inch thick

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 cups assorted fresh wild mushrooms (Chanterelles, Shiitake, Oyster, Black Trumpets), sliced
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onions

  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in 8 pieces

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. When oil is very hot and almost smoking, add steaks and sear first side only, about 4 minutes. Turn steaks to sear other side, 2 minutes.
